J is for Jetty

The jetty in Matagorda, Texas on a peaceful day.



A long pier leads to the huge slabs of granite that break the waves before they reach the shore.



Birds often congregate on the calm side of the jetty in Matagorda.


Though this jetty is the one we visit most often, I've seen and photographed several other jetties on our travels.

Walking the jetty in Port Aransas, Texas just before sunset.



Moss covered jetty in Atlantic City, New Jersey.



Fishing from the jetty in Freeport, Texas.


Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

  3. There is the Spiral Jetty in Utah but it's a bit hard to get to...very out of the way, but worth a day trip. All the jetty's you've visited are so beautiful and calming.
